Fancy Fronds Lecture and Plant Sale @ Joycreek Nursery

Judith will be giving an informative fern lecture and mini plant sale at Joy Creek Nursery:

Sunday September 23, 1:00 p.m.
All About Ferns with Judith Jones

“The many evergreen and semi-evergreen ferns are mainstays in our gardens throughout the year. However, there are many deciduous ferns that have spectacular color as spring arrives. Judith reminds us that autumn is an ideal time for planting. Not only does rain return to the Northwest, but it is still possible to see where additional plants are needed after a long summer drought. Judith will bring a variety of ferns from her nursery for sale.”


Judith Jones is the owner of Fancy Fronds Temperate Fern Nursery in Gold Bar, WA, which was established in 1977. During the course of her lengthy fern career, she has been privileged to work with some of the world�s foremost pteridologists and fern enthusiasts. Her main areas of fern production are the named Victorian cultivars, new introductions, garden ready xeric ferns and marginally hardy tree ferns. Visitors to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show have seen the playful, yet educational, side of her talents in the delightful display gardens she has created with friends and colleagues. There is a $10 fee for this class, please pay the day off the class at the nursery.

Hardy Plant Society of Oregon Spring Plant and Art Sale: Hortlandia

Hardy Plant Society of Oregon Spring Plant and Art Sale: Hortlandia

Hortlandia 2017 Plant & Art Sale

April 15th & 16th, 10am-3pm

Portland EXPO Center, Hall E2.

Free Admission.  Parking is $8 (charged by City of Portland)

In April of every year, HPSO sponsors an event that is probably the largest of its kind in the Pacific Northwest.   Vendors from far and wide – from nearly the Canadian border to the California border – come to Portland to offer the latest plant introductions as well as the time-tested (and hardiness-tested!) plants.   Complementing the plant vendors are specialty garden art vendors bringing one-of-a-kind pieces made from metal, wood, glass, ceramic, fabric, and stone.   Each work of art is handcrafted by the vendor.  This is a wonderful event, and it's particularly nice to have so many nurseries and artists, with so many plant choices and specialty works, all under one roof!

Volunteers make the sale happen.  It takes about 240 volunteers working 3-hour shifts to ensure that the sale goes smoothly.  As a benefit for helping out, volunteers get to shop one hour before the general public.

Hortlandia is held at the Portland EXPO Center.  This event is open to both HPSO members and non-members, and admission is free.  There is plenty of parking.  Although the City of Portland charges for parking, a few dollars can be saved by carpooling.  But, be sure to leave enough room to take home some plants and art!  Also, keep in mind that the Interstate MAX Yellow Line also goes right to EXPO for those that wish to take mass transportation. 

A few things to keep in mind:  No pets, wagons, strollers or carts are permitted inside the building.  HPSO will make reasonable accommodation or will provide assistance for people with disabilities.  Please contact the HPSO office in advance so arrangements can be made, and let one of our Greeters at the entrance know if you require assistance.

A room map and vendor list are typically available two or three weeks prior to the sale.

March Mania is one of the first big plant sales of the year in the Seattle area. It features spring ephemerals and choice garden plants not readily available at other times of the year. The sale brings together a fabulous group of specialty nurseries and growers who are not generally open to the public. Learn from these experts and let them help you choose some of the earliest bloomers of the season to brighten up a drab space in your garden. Most of the sale is held indoors, where the kids can enjoy fun activities just for them while you shop.

Shop great vendors like Windcliff, Bouquet Banque, Growing Girls, Lee Farm and more. Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit the educational programs of NPA and the NPA Border. What a great opportunity to help support your favorite gardening organization and reward yourself at the same time by shopping for new plants to wake up your garden.
